The trauma of a knocked out tooth doesn’t it mean it’s lost forever, but a root canal may be necessary. To successfully replant the tooth, the root must be alive and capable of re-attaching itself to the jaw bone. Depending on the condition of the tooth and damage to the root, an immediate root canal is an important part of saving the tooth.
If your tooth pain is caused by infection, damage to the tooth’s root – the pulp and nerve – requires immediate attention with a root canal procedure. The signs of infection and abscesses in and under a tooth include:
The root canal itself should hurt less than the damaged or infected tooth itself. Your root canal procedure is done under local anesthetic and may take between one and two hours. Your dentist must remove the infected pulp and nerve, and then the canals inside the tooth are cleaned to remove any remaining bacteria. A natural material fills the pulp cavity. A crown replaces the top of the affected tooth. Afterwards, have your regular dental checkups to ensure no infection comes back.
